    Dump some useless trivia here, especially if it's new information to you. TIL that how well LEGO and similar knockoff brand building blocks stick together is called "clutch power." While LEGO was unable to protect their blocks' shapes, their competitors do not use the same type of polymer they use and therefore the knockoff blocks don't stick together properly. They have less "clutch power."

    People have literally lost teeth trying to separate LEGOs. The world needs to know about clutch power.
